Watched the movie on HBO tonight, "The Laramie Project", anybody else catch it? I thought it was interesting, seeing how the movie wasn't so much based on Matthew Shepard himself but rather on the town of Laramie and it's residents. An interesting cast even though it seemed as if you were flying by each performance in the blink of an eye. The only other film on the murder was MTV's "Anatomy of a Hate Crime" which I really liked. It was surprisingly even handed given that the vicious murderers were given so much screen time. I know NBC has their own film (with the Shepard family's blessing I believe) coming soon. It's hard to believe it's been over 3 years since the murder. One of the last lines in "The Laramie Project" asked what has really come out of Matthew's murder? Anything concrete? Any new hate crime laws? Rather depressing really if you think about it. Maybe these 2 new films will re-awaken the topic among the public and hopefully, our lawmakers.
